When the Tour de France kicks off on Saturday, Tyler Farrar and Chris Horner will represent the Northwest while riding for their respective teams in the most famous and grueling bike race in the world. Even if you don't have cable, you still have a way to watch the entire Tour and cheer on the local boys along the way.
All the action will be available with a subscription to NBC Sports' Tour de France Live. Users have two subscription options -- they can either purchase a pass for the entire 2012 Tour de France for $29.99, or they can pay $4.99 per stage. All Tour de France Live coverage will be archived and available on demand until August 31.
The service is a solid deal if you pick up the bundle for all 20 stages, especially considering that Tour de France Live allows you to stream and track the race across a number of mobile platforms.
